100 Vice Chancellor's Research Scholarships

£15,009 (2019/20 rate) plus Home fees

The University of Kent has established up to 100 doctoral scholarships to be awarded annually. Successful candidates will demonstrate academic excellence and outstanding research potential.

Scholarships will be offered at the standard UK Research Councils’ rate and administered under the Graduate Teaching Assistant Scheme (GTA) which is designed for students seeking to gain teaching experience alongside their studies.


  • Candidates must hold a good Honours degree (First or 2i) or a Master’s degree at merit or distinction in a relevant subject or equivalent.
  • The scholarship competition is open to all new postgraduate research applicants.
  • Current Kent research students are not eligible for this scholarship.
  • UK, EU and overseas fee paying students are invited to apply. Please note that overseas students must have the appropriate documentation to evidence eligibility to work in the UK.

Kent, a research-led university, provides a vibrant and challenging academic environment informed by an international perspective and collaboration with top-ranked universities around the world. Our global partnerships provide the foundation for our international approach to research and teaching. In the most recent REF (2014) Kent was judged to have world-leading research in all subjects submitted and was ranked 17th in the UK for research intensity.
